We are excited to tell you about a new book that went on sale in mid-June, Norwood: 1940-1979 by local author Susan Daniels. This book is the newest addition to the popular “Images of America” series by Arcadia Publishing.
The book highlights a time of rapid economic and industrial growth in Norwood. It features several large companies that were developed right here in Norwood – Globe Wernicke Company and the United States Playing Card Company, to name a couple. The growth of these large companies brought the development of homes, schools and other businesses. The book looks at Norwood during this great time – 1940-1979 – and looks at how our citizens lived, worked, played and shopped.
